    Orono Commons is a wonderful place for quality, loving care for your loved ones. They are very responsive to family needs and have the best interest of their residents at all times. I highly recommend Orono Commons for rehab, assisted living and long term care!

    I can't begin to thank the staff enough for the wonderful care given to my wife's mom (Judy) recently while a patient at the Commons. I will never forget the kindness of the delivery of coffee, juices and fruit by the young lady from the food service. The many offers to help us from other support staff and the compassion and professionalism of the CNA's, LPN's and RN's. Thank you all again.

    My brother has suffered from multiple sclerosis for over a decade, and last year when I became his primary caregiver, I moved him to the east coast. Since then, he's had two hospital stays followed by two rounds of rehab at Orono Commons. The benefits we've derived from our time there have far surpassed my expectations. The staff has not only provided excellent care for my brother, but helped me to develop my skills as his caregiver. The success of the new home-care situation I've established here is in large part attributable to how generous the people who work at Orono Commons have been with their experience and expertise. I know that as my brother's MS progresses, the time will come when I am no longer able to provide all the care he'll need. I also know that Orono Commons will be there for us at that point. Having that destination is the context in which I am now able to focus on sharing this next piece of time with my brother. The care provided at Orono Commons goes well beyond the basics. We are welcomed as guests at least once a week at one of the musical performances hosted regularly there. The collective skill set offered by the staff makes this facility a vital community resource, and the generosity of spirit we've found there makes it more than just the sum of its parts.

    I came here from eastern Maine hospital. Was in a 4 day Coma and when I arrived here only had done 2 very wobbly steps . So after the PT and OP work got a stronger a little everyday . Now doo everything alone by myself in my room . My breathing a coughing are some better and now sleep better .the day crew are so wonderful .. Sweet people and do there jobs. However night crew I have a very hard time .. I would push call button because at that time needed help to go potty . It would be 45 min. Or more . Then ask for water and they would say be right back and never be back at all . I needed to have water all times because of choking problems Kitchen is really great most of the time but am Diabetic and find to many carbs .. But I just try to leave them But for the most part ( not all ) the food is very good ...

    The Orono Commons team is amazing in their work for the Alzheimer's Association. They also are wonderful to work with when discussing new admissions and how to transition new residents to their community. Such a friendly group of staff!

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.

  Residents Affected
Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
Actual harm that is not immediate jeopardy G H I
No actual harm with potential for more than minimal harm that is not immediate jeopardy D E F
No actual harm with potential for minimal harm A B C
